Today's Bible Verse
“It was not because of his sins or his parents’ sins,” Jesus answered.
“This happened so the power of God could be seen in him.”
From the book
Jesus had just healed a man who had been blind since birth. And the disciples had a question. It’s the same question we all have when we suffer: Why? They asked, “Why was this man born blind? Was it because of his own sins or his parents’ sins?” (John 9:2). They assumed that the man’s suffering was caused by someone’s sin. They just didn’t know whose.
The disciples’ question was completely focused on the cause of the man’s suffering. Notice, however, that Jesus’ answer to their question “Why?” was all about purpose, not cause. They were all caught
up in what caused the blindness but Jesus pointed them toward the purpose God had in it. The purpose, according to Jesus, was that the power of God, the work of God, the glory of God would be put on display in this man’s life. In fact, this is a purpose God has in every believer’s life.
<I'm Praying for You> Nancy Guthrie, p15-16
Father God, allow me to have eyes that desire to seek what You see. Mold my eyes to delight in gaze on You. Protect my eyes from being distracted by the dazzling things that don't belong to Your goodness. Fix my eyes on Jesus and help me choose to live a purposeful day with Jesus. In Jesus' name, I prayed. Amen.
